Two weeks since we first landed, and boy has it been a trip!
The first week was full of exploration and SO. MUCH. JETLAG. Something I’ve learned this time around is that going through jetlag as a parent means you have no say in how fast you over come it-it is 100% up to the littles. If the kids are up at 3am, you are up at 3 am. 🤦
Something that EASILY made up for this, however was that the food around here is AMAZING! We heard this was a foody place, being the cross roads of so many cuisine culture, and that has been 110% true. We’ve had amazing, authentic Chinese food, Georgian food, and Turkic food.
As well as some fun stuff like a Kung Fu Panda themed restaurant and a vegan burger from a disco ball food truck!
Thankfully at the end of week one we were able to locate and move into a new apartment! It is a 5th floor apartment with no stairs BUT we have an amazing view of the mountains outside our windows. #worthit
Something I’ve also realized is different moving with kiddos – it takes FOREVER to unpack. I’m the kind of person who wants to unpack ASAP because I want to get out of ‘transition mode’ as fast as I can. But between a 3yo who wants to dig all her toys out first and a 4 month old who wants to be held all the time, and getting back to my full time job, it has taken me the full week to unpack. We are just about there, though! 🙌
Other things we’ve been up to – checking out all the parks to find our favorites, Chris has started his first week language classes, trying to buy all the household items, AND our littlest one can now roll over, reach her toes, and giggle! We’re definitely trying to live it up in this “honeymoon season” of living abroad again!
